Are you in calculus or just like algebra/geometry?

2. janessia

geometry @Kainui

b*w*h?

the base looks like this |dw:1354915491985:dw| the area of this base is what?

6. janessia

25

7. janessia

?

8. jim_thompson5910

now to find the volume, you multiply the area of the base by the height since this is a pyramid, you divide the last result by 3

9. janessia

wat?

10. jim_thompson5910

(area of the base)*(height) = ???

11. janessia

so 25*6?

12. jim_thompson5910

yep

13. jim_thompson5910

that's not the answer though, it's a lead up to it

14. janessia

150

15. jim_thompson5910

now divide that by 3

16. janessia

ohk

17. janessia

50

18. jim_thompson5910

yep

19. janessia
